Compare & Contrast
Teaching Comparative Thinking to Strengthen Student Learning (A Strategic Teacher PLC Guide)
Developed in partnership with over 75 schools, this guide makes it easier and more effective for teams of teachers to engage in professional development using the Compare & Contrast strategy. Included in the guide are activities, sample lessons, student work examples, planning forms and learning tools. This PLC Guide takes you and your colleagues on a "guided tour" of the Compare and Contrast strategy, enabling you to: explore the principles and classroom phases that make it such an effective strategy; experience a model lesson using the strategy and learn from sample lessons; plan a complete lesson using the strategy; reflect deeply on your lesson and expand your use of the strategy; and examine student work at various levels of proficiency, and use your findings to plan next steps in building students' comparative analysis skills.
